A cellar bar under Jamie's Italian that is themed as an American bar. Seating on multiple level makes you feel as if you're in a lecture theatre. No real ale, but a decent selection of more unusual kegs. We were considering eating here, but decided not to bother as it was dead as a post at 8:30 on a Thursday. It's only been open 4 years or so, but it's already beginning to look a bit frayed around the edges. There are too many good pubs in Harrogate for me to ever venture in here again.

Mainly a basement bar under Jamie's Italian, serving a range of highly regarded US and British keg beers, there are no UK national keg brands or cask beers on sale.
The bottles are equally high quality from UK, USA, Germany and Belgium. Quite a few cocktails are also listed in the drinks menu. I was surprised to be given an ice encrusted glass to drink my Goose Island IPA from, still when in Rome. One large room with counter and kitchen hatch down one side, raised areas on two other sides and stairs to the entrance and a mezzanine floor on the other. Decor is modern and elegant in an industrial way, plenty of exposed concrete and brickwork, pipes and cable tray complemented by old fashioned light bulbs hanging on wires or mounted light fittings made from old gas pipes or trapped in cages. Seating is relentlessly high, be it booth like or stools, there's a few bits of lower bench seating for elderly. US style food majoring on burgers, ribs, chicken and steak. The gents has cut down beer kegs to pea and wash in.

There is free wifi but it seems erratic you might pick it up better from Jamie's, it also seems family friendly in the afternoons and wheelchair access is pretty good. There's a sports screen and a couple of music screens behind the bar.
